Gian-Carlo Carra beat out five candidates for his spot back on council.

Carra joined council after a minority vote win here in 2010. It's a different kind of ward: funky inner-city Ramsay and Inglewood, industrial areas undergoing redevelopment, east of Deerfoot communities like Dover and a more suburban feeling in Fairview, Acadia and Riverbend.

Add to the mix flood concerns and rail safety issues —​ you get it all in Ward 9.
